Cask offering @ Churchkey. Smooth and velvety, creamy head. Taste much stronger than aroma, but nice piney bitterness, finish fades fast, but extra points for texture.

12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

Bright golden hue, amazing lacing ... bubble show up the glass. Nostrils are slightly accosted by Galaxy hops and clean alcohol. Good amount of bitterness, soft citrus rind, pine, tea, peppercorn, and grassiness from the Galaxy hops. Malt base is enough to hold up to this onslaught and the 10% abv certainly brings it on for the Imperial IPA style. A lot of fun sipping this one.

Slightly hazy, decent head retention.

Bready caramel malt, fairly grassy, resiny, muted citrus notes of mango and pineapple. Pretty sweet. Slightly dank.

Toasted malt overwhelms the flavor, fairly sweet, becomes resiny and bitter at the finish. Citrus is underlying, but overwhelmed by malt and bittering hops. Grapefruit pith, orange, and earthy hops emerge.

Pretty smooth body. Alcohol warmth isn't as much as expected.

Too bitter for my liking. Hop flavor is somewhat muted by malt and bittering hops.
